Time use and work–life balance in Germany and the UK

Work–life balance has become one of the most pressing issues facing industrial societies such as Germany and the UK. As the proportion of dual-working households grows with women’s increased participation in the labour market, time pressures increase as families seek to co-ordinate and control their working lives. At the same time, pressures from employers can pull in the opposite direction as organisations try to organise time in order to be more responsive, meet consumer demands, and compete both domestically and internationally. This report analyses the time use patterns in working households and demonstrates how there are both considerable similarities and differences in the allocation of time across households and countries.
